London, June 19 (QNA) - The regime of President Bashar Assad has "every reason to be worried" about the development of the uprising in Syria, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has said.
Cameron, on Tuesday, urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to put his weight behind international efforts to step up the pressure on Damascus when the two men meet at the G20 summit in Mexico, the media here reported early on Tuesday, according to the kuwaiti news agency KUNA.
Cameron cautioned against Putin's proposal to invite Iran to an international conference Russia is hoping to organise to discuss the unrest in Syria.
Russia and China have so far blocked international proposals for more vigorous action to pave the way to a political transition which would see Assad removed from power.
Speaking before his meeting with Putin, which took place yesterday, Cameron was quoted by the BBC as saying the position in Syria was changing as predictions of a swift and easy victory for Assad's troops over rebel forces proved unfounded.(QNA)
